Branching or cascading an approval option within the approval email

Hello. 

 

I have an approval that has more than 5 custom responses.  Approval, Exception, Denied, Concern for A (for simplicity sake only using letters), Concern for B,  Concern for C and Concern for D.  Because the approval responses are limited to 5, is it possible to branch/cascade a response within the approval email? 

 

For example:

  • Approval
  • Exception
  • Denied
  • Concern (so if Concern is chosen, A-D would show)
    • Concern for A
    • Concern for B
    • Concern for C
    • Concern for D

If not, do you have any suggestions on a possible solution?

 

Thank you for your time!!

Hello @Misa ,

I don't believe it's possible, the approval email has just a response and comments field. Maybe you could utilize the comment field somehow - ask the user to input a specific value and then process it, but that would probably affect the user-friendliness of the flow.
